When it comes to shortened URLs, Bitly is the undisputed leader with minimizing 80 million URLs a day. They have now launched a new search platform that allows them to crawl as well as classify these URLs. This means that users can now search for the most “clicked on” links on the internet.
The New Search Platform
Now you can search for the most popular links on this new social search platform. How it works? Well, Bitly explain the working of the search platform in this manner, “So instead of pagerank we’re using a different filter – for any given search query, we display the stories that we predict will get the most attention over the next 24 hours. Then we use bitly’s analytics to refine our predictions in realtime. Our search technology is based on the the most valuable measure of engagement: the click. ”
Bitly explained the working with the example of an “OnStar” search. How the Google search lacks real time results, which can now be monitored with the reputation monitoring tool and the new search!
